British Airways appears to have cancelled all of its London Gatwick short-haul services for July, August and early September.
It seems – although it isn’t fully clear – that the most flights have either been transferred to Heathrow, retaining the same flight number, or merged with an existing Heathrow flight on the same day. Some routes will be cancelled outright for the rest of the Summer season, including Almeria, Antalya and Bergamo.
If your flight has been affected, check ‘Manage My Booking’. In particular, you may have lost any existing seat reservations and will need to select again.
Flights return to Gatwick from 8th September although this is clearly subject to change.
Some long-haul flights ARE still scheduled to depart from Gatwick to the Caribbean in late July. It is likely that these will depart from the North Terminal as the South Terminal, used primarily by British Airways, remains closed.
The scheduled flights are:
- Bermuda – 2 per week from 17th July
- Bridgetown, Barbados – 2 per week from 18th July
- Kingston, Jamaica – 2 per week from 20th July
- St Lucia – 1 per week from 25th July
